Raw thoughts

• It was good to see the problems between Edge and the anonymous Raw general manager were not glossed over

• That Over-the-Top Rope challenge did wonders for the credibility of Drew McIntyre, Jack Swagger and Tyson Kidd, didn’t it?

• CM Punk’s hair has reached that tricky between-stages bit. I like his new recruit, Mason Ryan, though. He looks like one tough bastard

• So Corre and Nexus had a staredown. Bit of an anticlimax, wasn’t it?

• John Cena said rectum on PG TV. Can you say rectum on PG TV?

• Natalya retained her Divas Title with a victory over bendy Melina. She’ll face Lay-Cool at the Royal Rumble. I wonder if Awesome Kong will debut?

• Daniel Bryan and Gail Kim are an item. After hanging around with the Bellas, it’s clear he has a thing for Raw non-entities

• Jerry Lawler’s one-liners are superb, especially the barbs aimed at Vickie Guerrero

• Edge v The Miz was a very entertaining match. They delivered in the ring and Dolph Ziggler delivered at the announce table

• Randy Orton stymied Edge’s post-match beatdown. Rated-RKO will face Ziggler and Miz on SmackDown. Yay!

• It seems Husky Harris and Michael McGillicutty will get a shot at the tag titles. Good. I’m yet to be sold on McGillicutty but Harris is awesome

• Why has Michael Tarver become omnipresent?

• Punk v Wade Barrett, refereed by John Cena, was a peculiar mix of crap and cracking. Both Corre and Nexus are in the Rumble, a match I reckon Punk will win.

• The final Raw before the Rumble ended with a massive brawl in the ring. Who’d a thunk it?
